Our final day on this beautiful island and I was so sad but determined to make the most of every moment! We booked online for a boat trip a couple of days earlier so we were up and raring to go. We booked through Santorini Boat Tours which was super easy and they offer a huge range of tours and trips not just the one we went on. The first stop was the volcanic island of Caldera where we hiked up to the top and wandered around this natural wonder. It wasn’t a long trip and not the easiest in the greek heat but it was so stunning and a great view of Santorini from a different angle. Following this we headed over t the hot springs for a dip and relax. I have to admit it was a bit like swimming into a pool when someone has just done a wee! but apart form that it was lovely (we didn’t get any pictures because we forgot the go pro…duh) but it was a lovely experience and I always love diving off the side of boats especially into the beautiful clear greek waters.
After the hot springs we stopped off at Thirasia which basically was a tiny island with not a lot on it. I feel as though it’s more for the restaurants linked to the boats to get some money from the tourists but we had a packed lunch so we found a lovely spot on the harbour, threw out our tiles, relaxed and stuff our faces with watermelon. It was probably one of my favourite moments with my boyfriend, nothing fancy or expensive, just us two in our own little world under the sunshine. Absolute heaven.
Once the boat trip had finished we headed back to Imerovigli where I was desperate to do this hike up Skaros Rock to watch the sunset. As you can see form the pictures below it did not disappoint if you are ever going to Santorini this is where you’ll see the most stunning sunset, no crowds of people like in Oia.
